The global medical industry is one of the world’s fastest growing industries, accounting for more than 10% of the gross domestic product (GDP) in most developed countries. This includes drug, pharmaceutical and medical device companies that have made significant contributions to the improved health and well-being of billions of people worldwide.
A typical process to move parts from a warehouse to a field technician generates a 77% reduction in barcode scans using automated optimization
Insight into techs, warehouses, and neighboring sources have a direct correlation to customer satisfaction. Automating this process by using mobile devices, field service technicians keep inventory updated, allowing everyone in the eco-system to review part inventories. When a part is needed, warehouse operators are notified on their device immediately for fast delivery or pick up. Once a part is in the possession of the tech, inventory is automatically tracked to that tech location. This automation ensures that techs can perform part requisition lookups from the main screen of the app, searching on item description, item number, or scanning an item.
There’s an app for that: Automating the moving of parts from warehouses to field service technicians

Field technicians are paid to do their job, not to study software manuals. Many field techs are under 40 and have spent their lives using Android and iOS apps. These solutions are easy to install; with a minimal learning curve, automating, tracking, and replenishing truck inventory in real-time is now possible.
